Any person aggrieved by the above documents may make an application to the High Court under Section 113 of the Planning and Compulsary Purchase Act 2004 on the grounds that:

It is intended to develop the role of West Bromwich as a Strategic Centre for growth within the region and subregion.
It is envisaged that over the next 10-15 years, the centre will experience significant growth and investment. A number of major proposals are already planned which will bring forward significant change in the town centre.
The West Bromwich Area Action Plan (AAP) will assist in taking these forward to delivery as well as identifying new opportunities for continued growth in the wider area. In doing so there will be a review of the existing strategy and policy that currently applies to the town, including the strategies and activities of the Council's partners that will facilitate delivery within the statutory planning system.
Following on from the Examination in Public in February 2012, and the issuing of the Inspectors Report in September 2012, it is now the intention to adopt the West Bromwich Area Action Plan on 4 December 2012.
The West Bromwich AAP has incorporated all the Main Modifications proposed by the Inspector, Mr Paul Crysell in addition to the Additional Modifications made by the Council.
